St. Catherine University has decades of experience designing and delivering degree programs for working nurses. You'll notice the difference in the the coaching and mentoring you'll get in the classroom from seasoned faculty, and the collaborative learning experience you'll share with colleagues from within and outside your profession.
With the needs of working nurses in mind, courses for the Master of Science in Nursing: Nurse Educator meet in a "hybrid" learning format. For each course, "face-to-face" late afternoon or evening meetings on campus alternate with online learning experiences.
You will be paired with a faculty advisor who will help you to design an individualized plan of study that allows students to complete the program within 2-4 years. Many courses in the program are offered more than once per year, allowing flexibility and uniquely tailored plan of study options. Courses are offered fall, spring and summer semesters as well as January term. See our degree planning page for details on course sequencing.
Based on your individualized plan of study and courses selected, students will often need to be on campus only one evening per week. For example, in the "Evidence Based Practice" course, you'll meet on campus from 5:30-9 p.m. on seven evenings over the 15-week fall semester.
Face-to-face meetings take place on St. Catherine University's beautiful, safe and historic St. Paul campus, where on-campus parking is available.
